A Modern Classic Look for a 70sqm Condo in Quezon City
A mother and her daughter enjoy their cozy and comfortable second home together
Most condo units are turned over plain and bare to the proud new homeowners. In fact, if you enter a newly opened residential building and knock on every unit's door, you might find that each room is almost exactly identical—down to the last bolt, screw, and nail!
If you would like to turn a standard space into an outstanding one, you may want to hire an interior designer. A design professional can help you personalize your property and truly make it a space that you can call your own. With this in mind, interior designers Marie Liel Therese Gardon, Alaina Santiago, and Czarina Cuaresma of Espasyo Manila turned a basic two-bedroom unit into a special second home for a mother and her daughter.
Since there was a column in between the living and dining areas, the design team had to make the most of a narrow living area. To address this limitation, the interior designers built the media console around the column and left a clear path from the foyer to the balcony.
They also turned the existing built-in window-type aircon provision into a useful window seat for the residents and their guests.
A framed Manuel Baldemor painting hangs above the black sofa in the living area. The black sofa is also paired with a custom-made lamp and a printed floor rug.
When guests are visiting the homeowners, they can use the pair of ottomans with gray-and-yellow stripes. On most days, these seats are kept underneath a white console table near the living area.
The dining area is furnished with four fully upholstered dining chairs that surround the glass-top dining table.
Meanwhile, the oversized bevelled mirrors serve as a focal point. These reflective surfaces open up the limited space and brighten up the plain area.
Just like the rest of the 70sqm condo, the master bedroom is filled with materials, furniture, and decor in black, white, and yellow. The private space feels opulent and luxurious because of the tufted headboard.
To help save on space on the night stands, the interior designers chose pendant lamps instead of table lamps.
The interior designers opted for a more modern look in the second bedroom. They used neutral shades, clean lines, and a light box for the headboard.
